ABSTRACT

Pandemic Influenza Implementation Plan: Part I of II   [open pdf - 15MB]

"Part I of the HHS Implementation Plan identifies eight cross-cutting issues that encompass many of the themes noted in the HHS [Health and Human Services] Strategic Plan and Guidance for State and Local Partners. These themes include infection control, laboratory diagnostics, surveillance, health care planning, and workforce support. Each chapter outlines actions and specific steps the Department will undertake to fulfill the directives of the HSC [Homeland Security Council] and accomplish pandemic preparedness. The eight cross-cutting issue chapters are: 1) International Activities 2) Domestic Surveillance 3) Public Health Interventions 4) Federal Medical Response 5) Vaccines 6) Antiviral Drugs 7) Communications 8) State, Local, and Tribal Preparedness. The action steps in these eight chapters are organized by the three pillars identified in the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza: preparedness and communication; surveillance and detection; and response and containment. The implementation of the HHS action steps is contingent upon the availability of resources."
